Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday held talks with his Russian counterpart, Dmitry Medvedev, to review the achievements in bilateral relations over the past decade and plan for the development of ties in the next 10 years.

Hu pointed out that the China-Russia strategic cooperative partnership has seen unprecedented development since the two countries signed the China-Russia Treaty of Good-Neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation in 2001.

He said the two sides have resolved border problems once and for all and become each other's most important strategic partner of cooperation.

The two sides have established proper mechanisms of regular meetings between their leaders and cooperation mechanisms between various government departments, Hu said, adding that China and Russia have signed more than 200 cooperative documents which helped improve the mechanisms and legal basis of bilateral ties.

Bilateral trade has increased from some 8 billion U.S. dollars in 2000 to nearly 60 billion dollars in 2010, and the two sides have carried out a number of large-scale cooperative projects in the areas of energy, science and technology and region-to-region cooperation, Hu said.

Meanwhile, the reciprocal staging of "Youth Friendship Years" and "Language Years" have improved the ties between the two peoples and deepened their traditional friendship, the Chinese leader said.
